The Sixers are once again playing basketball. After a summer of questions about jump shots, both Markelle Fultz and Ben Simmons played a game without taking any three pointers, though Fultz did take a couple of 15-footers. We talk about whether we’re encouraged or disappointed by the jumpers, go through Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, and each Sixers player’s performance in the game against Melbourne United. We also take a look back at the context of Elton Brand’s 2008 Philly max and the reactions to it, as well as Brand’s playing career with Andrew Unterberger.
We’re heading to Atlanta for Fly The Process this year. We’re going to find Paul Millsap. Last year’s trip was awesome, and this year’s trip has a hotel with a basketball court on the roof. You can put your deposit down now, which would be a good decision. All details are here.
We found a way to make those triblend t-shirts, with screen printed designs, that are the sort of quality we’re proud to sell at a much lower price. That’s right, this is your (Spike’s) dream, to get the Next Level triblend shirt for just $19.99. If you like 100% cotton instead of triblend, you can get that too. Thanks to our new merch company for making that possible. We’re also going to make the autographed Dario posters that we still have left available within the next few days. They’re very limited, less than 50, so don’t wait.
